Health Impact News Comments: Our Facebook Page on Coconut Health generates a lot of coconut oil testimonies. One recent testimony came from Debra regarding her developmentally delayed grandson, who did not talk for the first three and a half years of his life. She has allowed us to publish her testimony.

I really am a firm believer in coconut oil and originally investigated it’s uses for MS patients. My youngest son was diagnosed 5 years ago and I was looking for a way to help him. I use coconut oil in all my cooking so everyone benefits. I also have a son with diabetes and it seems to help balance his blood sugar.

But let me tell you about Matthew, my (now) 5 year old grandson. When he came to live with me, he was one cranky little boy. At 16 months, he didn’t sleep long, when he did sleep. His cheeks were always really rosy, and he had a very short attention span.

I just stepped back for a while and observed how my son was handling him, feeding him, caring for him, thinking maybe, as a new dad, and dealing with a new MS diagnosis of his own, he could have been doing something wrong. But I found nothing he was doing wrong. He was excellent with this little guy.

Still we had wild behavior, no attention span, no talking, very loose bowel movements, vomiting and red rosy cheeks. He also seemed to catch a cold at the drop of a hat. I tried what I thought was everything as far as feeding him a healthy diet but nothing seemed to help.

Having allergies of my own, far too many to mention, I started to eliminate certain foods to see if it could have been allergy related, and the only success I had with that was removing milk and changing to almond milk, which eliminated the diarrhea, but the other symptoms remained. We continued this battle for almost two years which was wearing all of us very thin. At age three and a half, there was still very cranky behavior and still no words would come out of his mouth.

I came across an article about coconut oil helping MS patients and ordered some immediately. Until its arrival, I continued to read all I could find about the oil and was more and more fascinated by it. As soon as it arrived, that jar was opened and I made my grandson some scrambled eggs, which was his favorite. He gobbled them down and went on his way. I was just very glad it didn’t change the taste enough that he wouldn’t eat it. He is very fussy. I didn’t tell anyone how I had altered his eggs, because I was only believing what I had read. This would be my proof. I am a bit of a health nut and sometimes my family and friends have a hard time dealing with it.

Well, the third day arrived. Matthew woke up and came downstairs for breakfast. I asked him if he wanted scrambled eggs, so I could feed him more coconut oil and he replied “Eggies, Mum” I almost fell on the floor. That day he just repeated everything I said. His daddy’s eyes just lit up when he came home from work and Matthew greeted him with a big hello. His crying fits and temper tatrums slowly disappeared as he stayed focused longer and longer. Slowly his little rosy cheeks gave way to a happy glowing face of a healthier 4 year old. At four and a half, he entered preschool and is the best behaved child in his class. He comes home reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing every song they learned in school. He is such an absolute joy to be around. My hat’s off to coconut oil. I don’t even want to imagine what this child’s life would be like without it.

Editor Comments: I asked Debra if her grandson had ever been diagnosed with anything that described his symptoms prior to beginning coconut oil. Her reply:

No, he was not.  The irratic behavior made me think autism, but I guess I was afraid of putting a label on it. I don’t have much faith in doctors and really didn’t want to start out this little guy’s life popping pills into him. I read every thing that I could get my hands on about treating it naturally and coconut oil was part of the remedy.

How to Use Coconut Oil in Your Skincare Routine

How to Use Coconut Oil in Your Skincare Routine

Coconut oil is often praised for its many health benefits and its versatility in cooking and baking. While these many benefits may have gotten you to commit to always keeping some coconut oil in your pantry, coconut oil has a big place outside of the kitchen as well.

Coconut oil’s healing, antibacterial, and cleansing properties take on an entirely new personality when used topically, making it the ideal multiple-products-in-one item to add to your skincare and personal grooming regimes. Since coconut oil is gentle on the skin and not laden with chemicals and ingredients you have to watch out for (like most of the skin and beauty care products sold today), this is a safe and easy oil for anyone to use and experiment with.

Here are 4 popular ways coconut oil can be used to replace the dozens of pricey, and often ineffective, products sitting in your bathroom.

Coconut oil is well known for being rich in health benefits for people, but this product is also highly beneficial for dogs and cats as well, and for pretty much all of the same reasons it’s great for humans. Incorporating coconut oil into cats’ and dogs’ lives both topically and internally will undoubtedly lead to dramatic improvements in their overall health. My 10-year-old German Shepherd was raised on coconut oil and a raw food diet and he is the marvel of veterinarians today.

Getting Coconut Oil into Your Daily Snacking

Getting Coconut Oil into Your Daily Snacking

Snacking is something nearly everyone does and likes to do. It’s fun, easy, and can give you that extra mood lift or energy boost you need in the middle of the day.

Unfortunately, mindless snacking can also lead to a lot of unhealthy habits such as feeding a sugar addiction. The body often craves foods and drinks that will boost energy, and sugar is usually the most readily available source.

Perhaps the best alternative you should be reaching for, instead of something loaded with processed sugary carbs, is coconut oil. Coconut oil is incredibly easy to work with, versatile, and can (and will) boost your energy, mood, and health.
